GripFun Director's Viewfinder

A Directors viewfinder or director's finder is a Viewfinder used by film directors to see the scene as seen by the camera lens. In appearance it is like a monocular telescope that usually hangs around the neck.

While modern film cameras are relatively light weight, earlier models were quite heavy and moving them required some effort. The director's finder allows the directors to be more productive as they can plan where to place the camera and which lens to select for the camera without the need to move the larger film camera.

Most viewfinders allow different focal lengths and film sizes. In some models also the aspect ratio is selectable. Some viewfinders allow the mounting of cinema lenses.

GripFun rotating viewfinder is the most affordable large size director's finder. It is relatively compact, but includes all standards film & TV formats and all standards aspect ratios including 16:9. The aspect ratio adjustment ring features convenient click stops. It makes your photographing enjoyable.

T-Mobile G1 battery

The T-Mobile G1 (previously known as the HTC Dream) is an Internet-enabled smartphone designed by High Tech Computer Corporation. It is the first smartphone in the market that uses Google's Android OS platform with an excellent web browser and strong ties to Google's online services, like Gmail.
Its GPS receiver makes its version of Google Maps more accurate.
It has a touchscreen but depends heavily on its integrated QWERTY keyboard.
The G1 also has Wi-Fi and access to T-Mobile's extensive hotspot network.

In comparison with the iPhone 3G the T-Mobile G1's battery life is acceptable. It's not great, but it can run through a charge in a single day if use the device frequently. On the other hand, if put the device aside as you are working on other projects and leave it just checking for your push emails to come in. At the end of three days it still had a 30% charge.

Sunpow Matte Box

A matte box is a camera accessory that essentially does the same thing as a lens hood and also mounts in front of the lens, but usually includes adjustable fins called French flags. These can be moved and adjusted to reduce unwanted lens flare caused by lights or the sun.

Another purpose of a matte box is to hold glass or plastic filters in place in front of the lens. Today, matte boxes are made for DV cameras and HD cameras for the same reasons as a film camera. Some are supported by two rods that run the length of the camera, while others are supported by the lens itself.

A matte box may have a bellows, a rigid sunshade or both, where the bellows is positioned within the rigid sunshade, having a mask which may be adjusted forward or back to suit the focal length of the lens.

Sunpow matte box fits Panasonic, Sony and JVC professional cameras. Its size is 215x170x50cm, and its weight is 2.35Kgs.

Blackberry Bold 9000 & BAT-14392-001

Like all other Rim old models Blackberry Bold 9000 wins thousands of fans after its first release. It is the first from this company to support tri-band HSDPA high-speed 3G networks around the world. It is the first from RIM with a half-VGA (480 by 320 pixel) display, and the first with robust support for viewing and editing Microsoft Office documents.

The design isn't a radical departure from RIM's earlier lineup, though. It will have a tablet shape with a QWERTY keyboard. However, it will be curvier, with corners that are significantly rounder than any previous BlackBerry.

Wi-Fi, GPS, and a 2 MPx camera will round out this smartphone.

Its battery is Li-ion type battery with capacity of 1500mAh. However its original battery is quite expensive since it has a special chip inside the battery. We receive calls for replacement battery. Now it is available. Here is a review of replacement battery.

Voltage: 3.7V
Capacity: 1300mAh
Color: White
Replace code: M-S1, BAT-14392-001
